WE turn our attentions back to the Essex Senior Cup tonight and it’s a competition we want to go all the way in.

I scored a few goals as we won the trophy last year and we are a bit of a target now because of being the holders.

We want to add to our tally of trophies, regardless of what competition we’re competing in, so we will be aiming to see off Saffron Walden Town tonight.

The manager, Dean Brennan, has been changing the team round a little bit in the early rounds of competitions and I don’t know who will be available in terms of injuries, but I will be ready and willing to play if called upon.

I scored in the defeat against Oxford City on Saturday and that was a really frustrating result for us.

We had a lot of chances but you can’t concede three goals at home and expect to win games.

We believed we would still go on and win the game.

In all honesty, we outscored teams last season but, when you move up the divisions, the defenders become more resolute and are better teams as a whole.

After enjoying cup runs, it’s important to pick up points when you return to your bread and butter - which is the league - but we didn’t.

On a personal note, I’ve now scored in consecutive games and that’s great going into such a congested Christmas period.

I’ve always been one of those strikers that prefers to score consistently rather than score a hat-trick and then not score for a handful of games.

After tonight’s match, we’re away to Eastbourne Borough.

That’s probably the only away game this season, living in Brighton, that I term as local and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since the fixtures came out.

I have a lot of friends at the club - I’ve known Dean Cox since the age of 11 having come through at Brighton together - and I want to get one over them!
